Australia's top golfer Adam Scott has claimed his first yellow jacket after winning the Australian Masters at Kingston Heath in Melbourne.

The world number five edged out defending champion Ian Poulter in a tense shootout on Sunday.

The Queenslander birdied the18th for a 5-under 67, winning by four shots after Poulter could only manage an even par 72 in his final round.

Scott says he is extremely happy with his performance.

"It was the goal coming out here. It was tricky out there today so it was a very good score," he said.

New Zealanders Gareth Paddison and Mark Brown finished tied third.
